Octavia Sleeping With Her Cello by HaloPrime Octavia Sleeping With Her Cello by HaloPrime
This is part of an art trade with :iconsokolas: .

The picture was based off of this sketch: [link] made by the same person.

Cutie Mark resource: [link]

This is the most detailed picture I have ever done so far :D. Granted the cello is a little wonky looking as well as the room itself, but I tried my best to do the sketch that this was based on some justice. It's more dynamic of an angle than I usually did, so that kinda explains my sloppyness.

Fun Facts:
-130 layers used
-Took about 14 hours total time to draw the character, background, and add the shadows.
-Drawn in SAI, shadows and cutie mark edited in Photoshop
-I spent an hour alone stressing over the glares of the window (damn OCD...)

Yeah I kinda realized that post drawing :x. This is part of an art trade when someone wanted completions of their sketches, so I just based this off of that initial sketch. I'd just like to think that she's just sleeping with a plush cello or something ;d.

I just noticed this. Octavia plays cello yet she has a treble clef as a cutie mark. Strange... Anyways, I like thi very much. It's quite cute.

Thanks c: And perhaps she is talented in multiple instruments, however is more well known for her cello playing? That's my headcanon with her cutie mark anyways.

Octavia has passed on, she turned up dead a few nights ago. She’d perished in her sleep, a peaceful departure, clutching her cello case firmly in her hooves and with a soft smirk on her wrinkled face.

I don't want to be a kill joy, but her cello is missing the F holes... Anyways, details, details.

IT.
IS.
A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!

I love it! Errmm... I am afraid of asking to use this as a base/reference, but here I go.
Could I use this as a reference?

Yeah, I wasn't exactly able to fit the F holes :x Not without distorting them or changing the original shape of the cello. It's also a bit too small and disproportionate (I'd like to think it's a stuffed cello or something).

As for using it as a reference, I don't have any objections, HOWEVER, this is the original sketch [link] . You may wanna ask them too if you can use it as a base. You can draw from my interpretation, but by all means, give :iconsokolas: some props too, please c:

Very nice! For the window glare, you could have used a little perspective to make the glare larger at the top of the window.

I didn't really have room to draw the F-Holes, so that may have been one factor :x. Also, it's kinda small for a cello now that I think about it.

Forget stuffed animals. This is cute!

At the same time I would like to think perhaps this is a stuffed cello. The real thing would be rather uncomfortable to sleep with, plus it could get damaged.

Sleeping with a cello would be so uncomfortable... but she's just adorable here.

That's very nice indeed. I really like the way the light's flooding in through the window there - it makes for a rather dramatic contrast.

And of course Octavia WOULD sleep with her cello. :)

My drawings usually take 4 hours at the very least because I'm a bit too OCD on how lines curves. Things like the the bottom curve of Octavia's mane is something I try to do with one stroke. I'm just glad the pic you gave me only had one eye, and a closed one at that. Otherwise, it would've been 15 hours or something XD
